AFC Bournemouth have announced a partnership with cloud-based ticketing solution SecuTix that will see the introduction of a new state-of-the-art ticketing system for the start of the 2020/21 season.
The club have invested in the new platform in order to give supporters a better online experience when purchasing tickets, including particular attention to accessibility for fans with disabilities as the club strives to be one of the most inclusive in English football.
SecuTix will handle both ticketing and hospitality sales through its SecuTix 360° platform, which is used by organisations across Europe including Everton and UEFA. Supporters can access their accounts on the new platform here.

Dan Clarke, head of ticketing at AFC Bournemouth, said: “When considering our ticketing platform, we wanted to ensure we future-proofed the system by working with a partner that can give us access to the most innovative technologies.
“SecuTix meets this need with an open and connected platform that is flexible enough to handle the inevitable changing nature of fan requirements.
“Of equal importance is our shared vision. When I met the SecuTix team it quickly became apparent that we had in common a fan-first approach to ticketing. I’m looking forward to seeing how this strategy improves the online experience for all our fans.”
David Hornby, managing director at SecuTix in the UK and Ireland, added: “We’re proud to welcome AFC Bournemouth to our growing stable of sports clubs and organisations.
"The SecuTix team relish the challenge set by the club to support its core value of inclusivity. We’re confident that we can work together to put AFC Bournemouth at the forefront of inclusivity within the sports sector.”
